# Questions tagged [newtonian-mechanics]

Newtonian mechanics covers the discussion of the movement of classical bodies under the influence of forces by making use of Newton’s three laws. For more general discussion of energy, momentum conservation etc., use classical-mechanics, for Newton’s description of gravity, use newtonian-gravity.

### Model (or approximate model) of drone take-off forces?

I would like to implement a model of the force/uplift the floor makes in a multicopter take-off, but I don't find any info of this exact dynamic. Is there any paper that tackles this issue? Or any ...

### Net Force on a System [closed]

In the figure given below is a system of a mass M ,a pulley and 2 masses of mass m. Now there is friction between bodies A and C and B and C. A force ($F$) is applied in such a way that body C is a ...

### Tension required for perfectly horizontal rope (having some mass per unit) [closed]

What is the tension required for a rope with a finite mass per unit length, hanging between two fixed equal altitude points under gravity, so that the rope is perfectly horizontal (without any "...

### The shell theorem and divergence in Susskind's GR lecture

In the lecture available here, at around 1:36:50, Susskind seems to argue that you can derive the fact that the gravitational field inside a spherical shell (of constant density) is 0 from the ...

### Condition for force acting on a particle for it to move in a hyperbola

Consider 2D motion of a particle, For a particle to move in a circle there must be a force of constant magnitude acting on it always pointing towards the centre of the circle. Similarly for an ellipse ...

### Estimating the displacement/force of a string (eg. guitar, piano) being struck by a mass (eg. by hammer or plectrum) at a given initial velocity

I have created a string audio synthesizer (eg. guitar, piano) based on physical modeling. It incorporates modeling for all the major phenomena that characterize a string. This includes things like ...
